AMMSI 2014 Scholarships

AMMSI is a network of mathematics centres in sub-Saharan Africa that organizes conferences and workshops, visiting lectureships and an extensive scholarship program for mathematics graduate students doing PhD work on the African continent. As in the previous years, the CDC supported in 2014 the request from AMMSI to support the African graduate student scholarship program for the academic year 2014. The AMMSI scholarship program continued to need international bridge funding to maintain its vital work of supporting the continent's next generation of mathematical leadership. In 2014 the supported students were from the University of Ngaoundere, Cameroon, University of Dar el Salaam, Tanzania, Malawi Mzuzu University, University of Zambia, Zambia and the University of Botswana, Botswana. More details can be found on the AMMSI website: www.ammsi.org
